  1. Headset recommendation

    I use a pair of Dave Clarkes H10 from ebay with the track IR modified to clip permanently to the headset.Changed the helicopter cord to a general GA cord which allowed the headset to be in stereo without having to rewire the headset. Cant get any more real than that. Ken
  2. Hi Pete I hope you dont mind me chipping in. I have P2A on a network machine programed to a saitek yoke button through Spadnext. I know this is probably different to your setup since you would be using your own programs but I have to have spadnext up and running before P2A or the yoke button will not be recognised even though the green connect button lights up in P2A. Just thought you might need to check your start up sequence. Ken
  3. No voices in drop down menu

    Thanks for that information Pete, thats something I definitely did not know. Ken
  4. Switch to outside views

    Hi This is straight from Chaseplane site. Cinematic Mode Cinematic Mode can be manually enabled by clicking the Play button located next to the camera modes in the top-right of the Camera pages. Alternatively, you can enable it from the In-Sim View Selector or via a key or button shortcut set in the Preferences. By default, Cinematic Mode will auto enable after 10 minutes of inactivity when flying above FL180. This behavior can be changed in the preferences. You can also manually interact with the cinematic viewpoint using the same controls you use to move the normal cameras. The following options are available in the Preferences > Camera section of ChasePlane: Change camera angle every X sec.: ChasePlane will automatically change the camera angle after a set amount of time. You can change how long each angle lasts or disable the automatic switching altogether by setting the slider to the left and use a control assignment to do request a new angle instead. Automatic camera motion: Defines how fast the camera is moving the Cinematic Mode. 1x is very slow and 50x is very fast. Zoom offset: If you feel like the aircraft is framed too tight on your display, you can adjust the zoom offset to zoom out or in as desired. Auto-Enable above FL180 after X min.: Set how long it takes before Cinematic Mode automatically enables above FL180 (18,000ft). You can disable this feature by setting the slider to the left. Control override Speed: Sets how fast the camera is going to move if you manually try to control it. Control override Inertia: Sets how smooth the camera is going to move if you manually try to control it. Resetting a specific camera axis You can reset any slider in the Camera > Controls page to the default value by double-clicking the white slider knob. Alternatively, you can directly input a position in the text box located next to the slider Here is the URL Ken
  5. Switch to outside views

    Hi If you have chase plane it is set to change to outside cinematic view after a period of time. This can be turned off if not wanted. I use a button on my yoke to turn it on or off.I use an older Razer Nastromo for TrackIR pause plus quite a few of the commands you dont want in your flight controls so that I never have to reach for the keyboard since its foot print is much smaller and less intrusive.

  6. No voices in drop down menu

    Hi Make sure you have the 64 bit voices as P2A will not even recognize the 32 bit voices. Ken
  7. Saitek panels

    Hi You should try Spadnext. You can use a trial mode. When you run the program try a snippet for the module. I can run any plane with this program although it takes a bit of getting us to. The easiest way is to look online through the program on a trial basis and work out your system through that
  8. Alternative to SPADNext?

    Hi I have been using Spadnext since it first came out and you constantly read that the program is overly hard. I started with the Saitek drivers,then Lynda, then Spad and then Spad.next . There is definitely a learning curve in the program but I found the easiest way was to go into the program and download either a snippet or a complete setup from the site. At this stage your Saitek units can be almost completely setup. If you are happy with the result you dont have to do anything else. I now have 10 units programmed through Spad.next and there is no way the other programs could go anywhere this bit of kit. Being able to make and program your own switch panels makes this hobby so much richer. A good example of the programs abilities is when my saitek switch panel died. Instead of throwing it out I have added leds above all the switches,removed the original USB cable and wired the switches to a Derek Speares board and that I allready had and then programmed the whole thing through Spad.next . All I can say is start small and work up from there. Ken
  9. PILOT2ATC speech problems

    Hi Just a thought as it happened to me. There are two train buttons almost next to each other. Make sure you use the left hand button to get into the Training. Ken
  10. What headset do you use?

    Hi I couldnt get any closer if I tried. I use a Dave Clarke Headset rewired for stereo and a filter module I made to use it on the comupter. I bought the headset 2nd hand off ebay a couple of years ago. The Track IR clip pro has had the clamp base removed and is now attached to the side of the headphones. Ken
  11. Traffic Optimizer?

    Hi I think this is what you are looking for; Seems like LM broke the SP1 SimConnect interface in v4. They hope to fix it in next release. Anyway because of it Traffic Optimizer (v1914) does not work with P3D v4. Until LM fixes it, here's a new version (v1915) which use SP2 SimConnect and works fine: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2kd5an6o448qi3d/AirTrafficManagerFSX-P3D_Radar_v1915.zip Don't forget to install SP2 SimConnect from: <P3D Install Dir>\\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi http://thingsrandom2014.blogspot.com/2017/06/traffic-optimizer-for-p3d-v4.html The links seem ok This information came from this post Ken
  12. Hi i will jump in here. SpadNext when you get use to it us in a word awsome. I use Saitek yoke, pedals, Fip, Switch panel, Auto pilot panel, radio panel, a Derek Spears board and a PacLed64 board controlling another 42 leds 22 switches and 8 encoders all running with the use of this program. There are numerous downloads on the site for different boards and planes from all over on the site to get you going. You dont have to buy the full licence to start with, in fact I still havnt but Connex (the owner) is extremelly helpfull. You can try the program on a trial ( I cant remember how long) to see if it is for you. By the way I am also a Beta tester but definetly not a salesman. Ken
  13. Anyone has / had OpusFSI?

    Hi Have you seen Sim Shaker for aviators. I use it with 2 buttkickers in P3d and DSC. No need for opus any more as I found these effects better, using a Sound blaster play usb card through to a standard amp to the buttkickers. I have found this set up a lot better than when I was using buttkickers own amps actually. This link will give you an idea https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=175028 Ken
  14. Pilot2ATC on Networked Machine

    Here you go Yair http://edgerunner.com/multiplicity Since I dont use Xplane I cannot help you there ,hopefully someone else can. Ken
  15. Hi If you use the program "Scp Toolkit" to configure the playstation joy as an Xbox joy then ChasePlane works perfectly. Here's a quick video Ken
